Every story has a beginning and ours began in Hendersonville, Tennessee… back in the day.
We decided that it would be fun to buy an existing car wash and build it into a great business. I mean how hard could it be really? Turns out that it’s a lot harder than you may think: we had tons of stuff break down on us (at some point, MacGyver must have been brought in to keep the place going) and we replaced a good third of everything before the end of our second year.
For a while there we thought we had bought the Money Pit of car washes, but it got better. The whispers from the cornfield were right when they said, “If you build it, they will come”. From the first day we took over the wash, the cars have been showing up in larger and larger numbers. We’ve just done the best we could and everyone keeps washing with us and we couldn’t be happier.
I’m glad that there are no student loans for enrolling in the School of Hard Knocks because if there were, we couldn’t have afforded to pay them. There was just so much to learn and we were pretty much drinking from the fire hose. And the learning isn’t done. We learn new things about car washing and customer service every day.
As much as we loved car washing though, we couldn’t do it alone; so we hired some great people and some that didn’t see our vision (bygones). We met some great friends along the way, without which, none of this would have been possible.
Fast forward to last year and we worked with some great new partners to build a second location in Spring Hill, TN. We continue to work with them as they run it with us.
We aren’t done yet though, not by a long shot. We’ve started working on our third location and hope to have it up and running by the Spring of 2017. What about the future you ask? Well, it’s kind of up to our amazing customers. If you love what we do and want to see this crazy idea of ours succeed, then we hope you let your friends and family know about us.
